125th Street is the place to be when you’re on the lookout for low-cost fashion.  Check out this necklace I bought for a whopping $2.18!  The Starbucks coffee I got this morning cost more than my jewelry.  How many fashionistas can say that?


Fashionmomix LOVES Jenna Lyons’ style.  But most of us don’t have her paycheck for purchasing clothes, and J.Crew isn’t the most inexpensive place to shop.  So Fashionmomix got street smart and found a way to get a little low cost Jenna stylin’.  Look at these two necklaces:

J. Crew Necklace

Necklace Street









The one on the left is J.Crew’s, which originally cost $88.  The other one I bought on the street for $10!  The vendor is at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue, near Hunter College, if you want to check out his jewelry.

Now some would criticize Fashionmomix for buying “rip off” street fashion.  But I would never spend $88 on a necklace anyway.  I’d rather put it in my child’s college fund or my 401K.  So J. Crew isn’t losing a purchase that I would never make anyway.  AND I still encourage you to shop at J.Crew’s factory site, which has lots of cool stuff on sale.
